The Venice Art Walk "ART & ARCHITECTURE" Tours are returning! Three separately ticketed home tours will take place on Saturday May 22 and Sunday May 23. Saturday tours include a cocktail reception following the tour. The Sunday tour includes admission to the centerpiece of the weekend, the Venice Art Walk & Auctions.
In its 31st year, the Venice Art Walk features more than 50 artist studios and special exhibits, a 400-piece silent art auction and food from some of the finest Westside restaurants. All proceeds benefit the Venice Family Clinic’s free health care services for the low-income uninsured, making this the feel-good, and feel-better, event of the year.
